SUBMISSION TO THE PARLIAMENTARY JOINT STANDING COMMITTEE ON SECURITY AND INTELLIGENCE

To Nick.

 

The essential position at common law has been that an arrest without warrant may be effected where a person is suspected on reasonable grounds of having committed a felony whereas for summary offences, the authority of a statute is required before there can be an arrest without warrant, and there cannot be an arrest without warrant on the mere suspicion that a misdemeanour has been committed.
